Great link and read. The part about pain is critical, you can't push through an injury. You can push through soreness but an actual damaged body doesn't repair if you don't let it!

Check out my Swimming Fitness group for great pool workouts and other low impact alternatives to running

I saw this link and though it might be helpful lifehacker.com/how-to-return-to-running-af
ter-an-injury-1553063140


The main principles stood out to me:

A short test run to see if any pain presented
3-4 days of low mileage to establish consistency
3-4 days of normal mileage to further establish consistency
Like Matt Fitzgerald mentions in his book Brain Training, I have a zero-tolerance policy for sharp pain


I think this can apply to coming back to any activity after injury, not just running.
